“Encyclopedic Collection of Treasures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

With so many collections, there is something to interest everyone. I recommend the Teaching Company Great Courses series of lectures about the Metropolitan Museum of Art as preparation for a visit. An interesting lecture series that will help you plan your visit. [Any of their art courses will make your visit more interesting.]

The dinner at the member's restaurant overlooking Central Park had a really wonderful gruyere tart and a very good meal overall.

“Terrific Gertrude Stein Exhibit on Now”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

The works of Gertrude Stein and her family are on display in a special exhibit through June. My friend and I flew to NYC just to see it. Well worth it - the exhibit is excellent and very educational. If you are in NYC don't miss it.

“I Love This Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

I had a great time visiting this museum. The exhibits were diverse and great. The museum itself was huge. The only downfall was the lines--which I was able to skip with the City Pass--but if you don't have one, the lines (at noon when I went) were horrendous. The Museum staff was very helpful and I had a great time. I cannot wait to visit again.

“I still haven't seen everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

I love the room with the Impressionist paintings, the Stained glass from Tiffany in the center area, the amazing jewelry from Egypt, the knights of armor from around the world, the Greek statues, and so much more I can't begin to list it all! And benches so you can sit and enjoy the art !
